Burns, Matthew K. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2012
Single-case design (SCD) research focuses on finding powerful effects, but the influence of this methodology on the evidence-based practice (EBP) movement is questionable. Meta-analytic procedures may help facilitate the role of SCD research in the EBP movement, but meta-analyses of SCDs are controversial. The current article provides an…

Burns, Matthew K. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2011
The current study demonstrates how conceptual and procedural knowledge can be used as a heuristic to better understand student math difficulties in order to develop interventions and lay the groundwork for future research. Math interventions were implemented with two elementary students using a nonexperimental single-case design. One student…

Burns, Matthew K. – School Psychology Review, 2011
The current article comments on the importance of theoretical implications within school psychological research, and proposes that ecological theory and prevention science could provide the conceptual framework for school psychology research and practice. Articles published in "School Psychology Review" should at least discuss potential…

Parker, David C.; Burns, Matthew K. – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2014
The instructional hierarchy offers a useful framework for targeting academic interventions. Within this framework, the accuracy with which a student reads might function as an indicator that the student should receive an intervention that focuses either on accuracy or on fluency. The current study examined whether the instructional level for…

Burns, Matthew K.; Kanive, Rebecca; DeGrande, Megan – Remedial and Special Education, 2012
The current study reviews a computer-based math fluency intervention with 216 third- and fourth-grade students who were at risk for math difficulties. The intervention used a computer software program to practice math facts an average of three times per week for 8 to 15 weeks. Data were compared to those of 226 students in a control group. Results…

Scholin, Sarah E.; Burns, Matthew K. – Psychology in the Schools, 2012
Curriculum-based measurement is commonly used within a response-to-intervention framework to assess the effectiveness of intervention and to triage students into intervention tiers (e.g., the lowest 10% receive a Tier 3 intervention, and those in the 11th to 25th percentiles receive a Tier 2 intervention). We conducted a meta-analysis of 18…

Kanive, Rebecca; Nelson, Peter M.; Burns, Matthew K.; Ysseldyke, James – Journal of Educational Research, 2014
The authors' purpose was to determine the effects of computer-based practice and conceptual interventions on computational fluency and word-problem solving of fourth- and fifth-grade students with mathematics difficulties. A randomized pretest-posttest control group design found that students assigned to the computer-based practice…

Karich, Abbey C.; Burns, Matthew K.; Maki, Kathrin E. – Review of Educational Research, 2014
Giving a student control over their learning has theoretical and intuitive appeal, but its effects are neither powerful nor consistent in the empirical literature base. This meta-analysis updated previous meta-analytic research by Niemiec, Sikorski, and Walberg by studying the overall effectiveness of providing learner control within educational…

Larabee, Kaitlyn M.; Burns, Matthew K.; McComas, Jennifer J. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2014
Despite their recent popularity in schools, there is minimal consensus in the educational literature regarding the use of mobile devices for reading intervention. The word box intervention (Joseph "Read Teach" 52:348-356, 1998) has been consistently associated with improvements in student decoding performance. This early efficacy study…

Petersen-Brown, Shawna; Burns, Matthew K. – School Psychology Quarterly, 2011
The current study investigates the effect of adding a semantic component, in the form of vocabulary, to the incremental rehearsal (IR) procedure. Sixty-one second- and third-grade students in a suburban elementary school were randomly assigned to one of two conditions: IR or IR with vocabulary. Each participant was taught seven previously unknown…

Someki, Fumio; Burns, Matthew K. – Psychology in the Schools, 2009
Measuring student response to interventions has become an important role for school psychologists. Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are frequently treated with stimulant medication, but the response to the treatment is rarely adequately assessed. The current study examined the sensitivity of measures used to assess the…

Burns, Matthew K. – School Psychology Quarterly, 2007
Sight-word instruction can improve functioning with various daily, recreational, and work-related tasks among children with moderate to severe disabilities. Previous research has demonstrated the effectiveness of drill methods to teach sight words if the model contains at least 50% known items, which would also increase the number of opportunities…

Burns, Matthew K. – School Psychology Quarterly, 2007
Curriculum-based assessment assesses the match between curriculum and student skill by computing the percentage of known words in a reading task and comparing it to the instructional level criterion of 93% to 97% known. The current study examined the effect of preteaching unknown words to 29 third-grade children identified as learning disabled…

Burns, Matthew K.; Sterling-Turner, Heather E. – Psychology in the Schools, 2010
Previous research has demonstrated the importance of examining the instructional efficiency of academic interventions and has defined efficiency as the number of items learned per instructional minute. Maintenance of the skill is also an important instructional goal, however. Therefore, the current study compared efficiency metrics using initial…

Burns, Matthew K.; Wagner, Dana – School Psychology Review, 2008
The current study applied meta-analytic procedures to brief experimental analysis research of reading fluency interventions to better inform practice and suggest areas for future research. Thirteen studies were examined to determine what magnitude of effect was needed to identify an intervention as the most effective within a brief experimental…
